Scientist in the spotlights

08 May 2013

Every year, the Dutch academic funding body NWO organizes the Bessensap event: a gathering of mediagenic academics and journalists. Groningen science historian Arjen Dijkstra will be one of the participants on 10 June 2013. Together with student Yoran Staas, he won the Bessensap Film Contest with a video short on the University of Franeker, which was the centre of mathematics in the Dutch Republic in the Golden Age.

The weekly online video magazine Unifocus highlights topics related to the University of Groningen in the fields of research and society, student life, teaching, policy and internationalization.
